MOD's Cicuitousness

A most recent War Pensions tribunal in Edinburgh couldn't reach a decision ,as the MOD failed to send a representative. Judgement is awaited.
The previous Tribunal dealing with the same case-falsification of medical records- produced a General Officer
attempting feebly to defend MOD's actions. This time, wasting much tax-payers money, they failed to send anyone.
Dear oh dear what a pathetic shambles.

Pot, this is kettle. Your wibble is some of the most circuitous I've seen. A link to a source would help other readers to form an opinion. You may have a point buried in wibble or you may be talking out of your chuff.

Epsom Salt. Seadog may not have attended all the lectures on the bedside manner course, but he makes a valid point. Your original post does not provide a reader with a reference to the case which could help explain the reason for your concern. Can you provide a bit more information?
Seadog. I missed some of those lectures too......

Scottish jurisprudence is not as open as ours. the Tribunal service operates throughout the Uk but, so far as Scotland is concerned, details are not openly published. As soon as we are able to get at the facts you will know.

Interesting thread. I feel like I've started to read the last chapter of a book without knowledge of the preceding chapters.

My missus does a similar thing to keep me in a state of bewilderment. A conversation will frequently commence in the assumption I have the ability to read her mind on an issue she has been mulling over for quite some time.

I've found the words "fully" and "agree" usually suffice at such times.

I have to say, the first post in this thread has left me a bit baffled.

It's the equivalent of this:

Darwin (to audience) - "It is my duty to inform you all that everything you have been told and learned is in fact, a fallacy. We, the children of Adam and Eve, are in fact descended from a branch of Old World tailless anthropoid catarrhine primates known as Hominoidea, or in fact the common Ape"

*Sits down, crosses arms, glares at everyone*

Member of audience - "You have, i take it Sir, proof of such a bold statement, so that the learned among us can formulate our own opinion?"

Darwin - "What on earth are you on about?"

At long last......
This is what happened;-
A FOIA request was made by a former British soldier.
He disputed the replies given and asked to see the original documents the MOD were referring to.
MOD refused.
It was suggested to him, by a friend ,that, by reciprocal agreement, the US would have those documents. They released them to him under their relaxed FOIA rules.
So it went to Tribunal.
The MOD failed to respond or to send anyone to the Tribunal Hearing.
The Judge, in his or her wisdom, found in favour of the MOD saying "They acted in good faith".
Since the law was abused , it will now go to the Higher Tribunal at great public expense.

More later.

Look, if you want to make a point then make one. However, unless you are using this forum as a sort of self-masturbatory wankfest then at least try to explain, with evidence (i.e. links) what you are talking about. For all I know you may have a very valid issue against the MOD but it is lost in the cryptic way in which you post.

So either post properly so we can all understand your issues or bugger off.

Is it just me or does anyone else think the AG is mellowing with age?
